Who should attend?
This course covers Levels 1 and 2 and is considered suitable for the majority of dentists and dental care professionals working in general practice. See below for further details regarding minimum training requirements.
The Intercollegiate document,
which the CQC expects practices to follow, sets out minimum training requirements:
- Level 1: for all non-clinical staff (e.g. receptionists and practice managers)
- Level 2: for all dentists and dental care professionals
- Level 3: for paediatric dentists and paediatric orthodontists (i.e. those who could potentially contribute to assessing, planning, intervening and evaluating the needs of a child or young person and parenting capacity where there are safeguarding / child protection concerns). Level 3 training is not normally required for dentists and dental care professionals working in general dental practice, although staff acting as a safeguarding lead may wish to consider undertaking this level of training.
